With November 2013 not even over yet,  Hillary Clinton leaves her successful fund raising for Terry McAuliffe and Bill de Blasio behind and moves on toward the mid-term primaries.  Her first beneficiary will be someone very close, according to HuffPo.

Marjorie Margolies represented Pennsylvania’s 13th district from 1993-1995.   She lost reelection after casting the final and deciding vote to pass President Clinton’s 1993 budget (as he had asked her to) despite her opposition to it.  No one should have any doubt about the value the Clintons place on loyalty.  Those up for reelection who never paid dues in the past need to take note.  It may take more than running over to Ready for Hillary or signing a letter to get a Clinton on your campaign bandwagon.  For now, at least, they are keeping it in the family.


Hillary Clinton To Reportedly Fundraise For Marjorie Margolies, Chelsea Clinton’s Mother-In-Law

Posted: 11/19/2013

PHILADELPHIA – Hillary Clinton will be appearing next year at a fundraiser for Marjorie Margolies’ congressional campaign in the Pennsylvania suburbs, according to Ken Smukler, who serves as a communications consultant for Margolies.

Margolies, who is Chelsea Clinton’s mother-in-law, is locked in a Democratic primary campaign against a strong progressive, state Sen. Daylin Leach, as well as two others. Margolies served one congressional term in the early 1990s.

Longtime Margolies fundraiser Linda August, who attended Chelsea Clinton’s wedding, also confirmed Clinton’s upcoming appearance.

“Hillary said from the beginning that she was not going to be political this year except for McAuliffe and family. She is scheduled to come in six months before the election. She is coming in just when we need her,” said Smukler, who also serves as spokesman for the local Democratic party. “The Clintons are doing this for themselves as much as for Marjorie. They can’t have a family member lose a race for Congress six months before she is gearing up for a presidential election.”
